Guidelines for Selecting Staff Development Providers: A Resource Book for Rural Educators.
Vaughan, Marianne; And Others
Based on planning, training, and technical assistance experiences of services providers involved in the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory's (SEDL) Rural, Small Schools Initiative, this guide provides rural school administrators with a resource in identifying, selecting, and negotiating with staff development providers. The resource book includes: (1) a brief overview of the process of school improvement and systematic staff development; (2) practical guidelines for selecting staff development providers; (3) a directory that lists and describes organizations that provide rural and small schools either qualified external consultants for staff development or information that may be helpful in planning staff development; and (4) promising programs of staff development in rural schools in the Southwestern region, including contact persons and addresses for the programs. A bibliography of recommended supplementary readings on systematic staff development is also included. (Author/KS)
